#22 Knit Stitch and Cast-On nearly complete

This block was not difficult and it forced me learn to make a decent looking I-cord. I have to make a second I-cord for the opposite side of the block. The block background is made up of a nine stitch repeat. It takes six rows to make each "stockinette" stitch. I think this block is very clever. When describing her block design, the designer of the block writes...

Since I love stockinette, I wondered if I could come up with a cable that looks like stockinette stitch fabric and his is my result. I also wanted to mimic a cast-on and bind-off edge on a big scale. I found I-cord worked in chain stitch stitch did the trick.
